Bodukwan Multi Fruit Processing Factory, a company owned by the overlord of Asante Kingdom, His Majesty Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, Asantehene, is set for commissioning to start its operations.
The commissioning of the Multi fruit Processing Factory, Green Houses and inspection of Royal Jute Factory of Bodukwan Holding Company will take place on Tuesday, 1st December, 2020 in Sabin-Akrofrom.
Bodukwan Holding Company is an indigenous Ghanaian Conglomerate with interest in farming, Agro processing and Jute sacs production.
Established in 2000, Bodukwan Farms now consist of mango plantation, teak plantation and oil palm plantation.
Bodukwan Holdings has grown consistently over the last 20 years and today comprises three (3) independent subsidiary companies.
The Subsidiaries are:
• Bodukwan Multi fruit Processing Company
• Bodukwan Farms Limited
• Royal Jute Company
The company which is situated in Sabin-Akrofrom in the Ashanti Region will be a solution to many people who are in crop production.
Farmers who are in crop production have always been hollering for a storage facility that can store their crops after harvesting in solving post-harvest loses.
The annual ritual of fruits going waste on farmlands in Ghana will soon be a thing of the past following the establishment of a multi fruit processing factory.
It is estimated that about a third of farm produce in Ghana go waste due to lack or poor storage facilities and other post-harvest issues. It is for this reason that many have called for value addition especially in the fruit sector and creating meaningful jobs for the youth.
And Asantehene has just sprung up in the wake of this call.
